A Conversation with Novelist Josh Henkin

the Spectator

Josh Henkin will read from his new book, "Swimming Across the Hudson," Mon., May 12, 7 p.m. at Dutton's on San Vivente. Josh Henkin's paternal grandfather was an Orthodox rabbi who lived in the United States for 50 years without ever learning to speak English. Still, the author was able to forge a strong connection with the old man, the kind of bond that transcended language and linked Henkin to a people and a past.
